It was cool this morning. I kid you not — cool in Alabama. Even though it was about 5:30 am, I sat out on my porch swing, watched my kittens play, and enjoyed it. And then I thought
This made me really happy. I love winter. I'm happy that I took Heritage Trail along to the U.S. Women's National Soccer Team game in Birmingham on Sunday.
I am really happy about the massive colorwork stash I've put together by buying a few skeins here and there. Although I love my Peerie Floors hat, I'm not completely in love with the scratchiness of the wool yarn I knit it with. This yarn is a merino/cashmere blend and I have mad plans for it. Plans that are above my skill level and will probably make me curse my needles and my sense of adventure, but I am looking forward to it anyhow. Stay tuned.
I'm also swatching for Thea Coleman's new Rye sweater. I love Thea's straightforward, well-written patterns. And I need a new sweater in a nice warm yarn like Plucky's Cozy because, um, Winter IS coming. At least, I hope so.
